I am trying to run the rosserial tutorial "hello world" on a chipkit max 32. I can compile and upload to program to the max32. when I run "rosrun rosserial_python /dev/ttyUSB1", it returns ROS Serial Python Node Connected on /dev/ttyUSB1 at 57600 baud then after several seconds it returns [ERROR] Lost sync with device, restarting.... when I first start the python node the tx light blinks and every time the node tries to connect. I have read other posts, but non of them seem to answer or fix the issue. The max 32 is almost identical to the arduino due but it runs on a pic controller. I am using the latest mpide 23. I am not sure how to get it to connect and work.
